Understand the issues

The duty of storage

Laura Richardson discusses the duty of storage to serve the needs of the business in the most cost-effective manner possible.


Lower the cost of storage by simplifying how it’s requested

Inefficient storage management is often marked by over-provisioning, inaccurate tiering and high costs. Efficiency depends on process standardization, but establishing the necessary governance framework can be complex and costly. Laura Richardson, IBM storage services technology executive, discusses IBM’s Intelligent Storage Service Catalog (ISSC) and the cost and efficiency benefits of making storage requests predictable and repeatable.

A blueprint for smarter storage management

Optimizing the storage environment with automation and analytics


Is there a cost-wise way to manage the exponential demand for storage?

IT has all hands on deck trying to manage the huge volume and velocity of data, but Barry Becker, IBM director, data center services center of excellence describes how Storage Infrastructure Optimization can help. Find out how it is helping to reduce storage costs – up to 20-25% savings in one year and up to 50% savings over 3-5 years.
